CEDAR CREEK (Collin County). Cedar Creek rises three miles northeast of Farmersville in eastern Collin County (at 33°13' N, 96°19' W) and runs west for three miles to its mouth on Indian Creek, northeast of Farmersville (at 33°15' N, 96°21' W). The local terrain varies from flat with shallow depressions to rolling prairie with some steep slopes. The area soils are clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, oaks, junipers, and grasses. The region has been used as crop and range land.
